Happy Things

Mmmmmmm.....the worlds best chocolate biscuits, bar none.

True Blood on DVD. I've got a slight fang fetish, peeps.

Lavender scented sheets.

I'm feeling pretty good's partly school holidays, partly sleep deprivation, (erases the care factor) and partly from a quiet hour of concrete zen. Sometimes I get more from ten minutes of deep breathing and basic tai chi than I do from an hour at the gym. I know there's a place for each in my life, it's like everything else....a balance thing. I'm getting closer to the right formula, it's just a matter of listening to yourself and giving your body what it needs. I've gained a little weight, which I really needed to do, but I'm still managing to maintain the muscle definition I'm working on with the weights, plus I can feel my flexibility improving...partly yoga, partly warming up with the boys at Tae Kwon Do. Sometimes when I take a deep breath, I can feel it all the way to the soles of my feet. It's fabulous. I feel powerful, in control. I'm still tired (heehee, understatement) but even that can be a good feeling. There are so many things that I can't control, possibly shouldn't even want to control, so I'm concentrating on the things I can and should master. Number one being my self, my mind and body. Once I've achieved the balance I'm after, the other stuff will come easier. I know it will.

You need to indulge with some Chai Tea after your Tai Chi for maximum chill factor ;)
